I just recently got offered a pretty easy 9 month gig that would pay $50k. Being 50 I am not too old for a retiree to work a bit again. It intrigued me for about 5 minutes, then I put the pen to paper and I would only net $27k after taxes, loss of tax credits, and transportation costs....Then you figure in all the time and driving...Add in the fact the money made would only be put into investment accounts with no value derived from the earned money and the answer became obvious....Plus after 5 years I am out of practice and am just too damn lazy to give the job the effort it properly deserves.

DH has suddenly become an extremely motivated part timer in retirement, thanks to my requirement that he purchase his paramotor equipment, training, and assorted supplies from the "sweat of his brow" rather than from our household budget. He's done a bunch of IT consulting, some handyman type work, and even helped a guy move some stuff with our truck for $50!
Let me tell you: he was never this ambitious when he was actually working for a living!

If you are really just looking for a way to keep busy then find some volunteer opportunities. There are a lot of them out there. Some may lead to paying positions.

Part-time or full time - w*rk is w*rk. I don't want the schedule hassles or obligation unless it is on my own terms. It is always easier to say no if they are not paying you.

Happy, Wild, and Free
